Musical Saw Players Map

I’ve now added a map/registry of Musical Saw Players on my Map page – A great way to locate Musical Saw players who might be nearby. Whether for jamming or teaching or learning from. If you are a Musical Saw player, please consider signing up!

I’ve finished with the move down to Florida – Things went more or less smoothly, although I had some CD’s (Virtuoso) that disappeared during the move. They are probably in some box that is currently hidden under something and I’ll find them the next time I do any sort of cleaning… Oh well.

COVID-19 is still a threat so no one is allowed in the shop – we are purely an internet business. Only folks 65 and older are being vaccinated in Florida – so I’m chomping at the bit, waiting for them to lower the age! Once I finally do get vaccinated, I’ll relax things a little bit – but will still comply with the CDC recommendations re. masks, distancing…

We were shut down for a while to do our part to help tame Covid19… The store is back up and running. We are probably going overboard in our precautions (masks inside 100% of the time, Social distancing, no customers allowed in the store – Internet only, etc. Everything the CDC recommends and then some!)

I’m sure some time in the future we’ll look back at how crazy-paranoid we were, but oh well…

Other News, we are gearing up to move the shop down to Florida! I love Illinois and all my friends here – but hate the weather! – So that will be another disruption in our business. I’m working a lot to build up my inventory, so hopefully, I’ll be able to handle any requests!
